Easy Yet Sophisticated Garlic Bread

Don't give your secret away. Once you have made this and served it, your diners will wonder where you had it catered from, never suspecting that it is easier than blinking an eye. A great side for salads, pastas or soups.

You will need:
Loaf of your favorite bread, sliced
Good quality olive oil
Kosher salt (large grained)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Freshly minced : Rosemary &
Garlic cloves
* amounts will all vary depending on you choice of bread and the number of people being served.
** depending on my guests, I like to add a little kick and put in some Cumin and Cayenne as well!

Preheat oven to 350d. Mix salt, pepper, rosemary and garlic together and set aside. On a plate large enough to fit the entire face of your largest piece of bread, pour a good amount of olive oil to cover the bottom. Lay each slice of bread in the oil until one side is completely coated and place, oil side UP, on an ungreased cookie sheet. When all of the bread has been 'oiled', sprinkle the herb mixture on generously and bake until the tops of bread are golden or crispy. Some breads won't brown, they will go from white to burned, so watch them! Serve warm.
